the boys have done it again
hilarious, as usual. Ricky at his wittiest, Steve at his smartest, and Karl at his round-headedness. Two thumbs way, way up.
getting a bit tired
I kind of get it by now. Karl is simple, Ricky is enlightened. Even Stephen sounds preachy and superior in this installment. There is an underlying arrogance to Ricky's humor that I've always forgiven because the material and perspective was fresh and often hilarious. Now, though, it's really starting to show through the weak spots in the fabric.
Makes the traffic melt away.
I bought every one of these podcasts and specials and I've been listening to them on my drives to work. There have been times where it may not have been safe for me to drive because I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe and my eyes were full of tears. My only problem is that I don't know how I'll deal with LA taffic once I've listened to them all. Please keep making these!
